Thank you to everyone who entered our competition to win Hilton Honors Gold status on Wednesday.

I particularly want to thank the seven readers who got in touch during the day and also offered to give away their own Hilton Honors Gold gift code.

This meant that we could give away EIGHT prizes of Hilton Honors Gold status.

The eight winners were:

  • Mark T
  • Nick G
  • Cynthia M
  • Sam B
  • Derrick McK
  • Andrew McC
  • Nishant P
  • David C

Fingers crossed that we get hotels open again soon and our winners can enjoy their free breakfasts!

PS. Apologies for not publishing the winners of our Jones Bootmaker competitions yet, which ran just before Christmas. We had difficulties contacting one of the winners. We gave the person far more leeway than was allowed in the rules to come forward, but we have finally given up and drawn another winner for one of the prizes. We will publish the full list soon.
